I had a quadcopter questions so I thought I would use the megathread馃槀馃槀馃槀. I found this quadcopter on gearbest聽found a very interesting good in Gearbest锛欽JRC JJPRO - P130 Battler 130mm RC Racing Quadcopter - ARF http://www.gearbest.com/multi-rotor-parts/pp_461940.html and went holy crap that's a a great deal and looked into it to see if it would be compatible with my fs-i6 and I can't find anything about the receiver on the quad, so what receiver is on this quadcopter and is it compatible. If there is no receiver what receiver would be compatible with it.

Looks like it needs a receiver.聽

We should make a grave for props. I could donate a few, well maybe more than a few 馃槀馃槀馃槀

I didn't crash once here. I also run DAL cyclones which can take a good bit of abuse. Also have a ton HQ v1s 5x4x4, some butter cutters (they're not great after you crash :/), and some Racekraft 5x4x3 props. I got plenty.聽

My props can too, but I mean when you accidentally lay your soldering iron on one, they become.......Less durable

Is it bad to learn on 4s battery. The racing quad I'm looking at takes 4s and I know I'm going to want 4s after o get the hang of it so would it be bad to use 4s or should I get a 3s battery to start on. Also if you know how to get an fs-i6 to work with drl simulator using the USB to trainer port cable, that would be a huge help.

aahhh thats a hard one hey, I honestlyu wouldn't know enough to say if its good or not, but personally I found I ether build 180-200 for Racing or as small as possible on Brushless so like a 90 as the smaller the more fun I can have indoors without the constant battery sag of some of the whoops.聽

Its personal hey. I know the 110-180 quads can be great I just personally don't see a point in them, Would rather spec up my Racer or indoor. don't need a in between.聽

I know you just said you don't like 180mm but I don't know much about racers so I need help.聽Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/142337088409

I've gotten the price down to $75 already and I think I might be able to get it down to 60 bit I just wanted to know what you thought of the racing quad they have. Also is it bad to start on a 4s battery? Both 3s and 4s are about the same for 1300mah batteries so should I just start with a 4s and skip 3s?

Start on 4s and stick with it.聽

Ok, and is this quad good for $75?聽http://www.ebay.com/itm/142337088409聽I don't want to build my own yet. Thanks for all the help.

Trust me, build your first one. Good quad and $75 never go together.聽

They have the parts listed, every time I have tried I have failed, I don't feel comfortable doing it. If The parts are ok I can upgrade the crap out of that one too.聽

Doing other things, just trust me I don't want to do a build, I'll upgrade this one if the components are okay to just fly around with. There's no way you could build your own for $70

It you don't build it, it'll be harder to fix it when you break it. You will crash and you will break things, you need to know how to fix them.聽

Well, if there a build that's less than $75 that will be better than the build on ebay I'm all ears. But $75 is already topping out my budget and that budgets not really going to change.

I won't comment to much as I generally like to stick to tried and true proven setups,聽not go for the cheapest option out there.聽 But one thing that blatantly stands out to me is that those props are probably going to be way to much for those motors.聽 Motors are listed for use with 3x2 but you are buying 3x4.5 blunt nose tri-blades.

Oh crap I forgot to change those, I was originally using bigger motors. Thanks

Is anyone looking for a cheap radio? I have a Fly Sky i6 I'm trying to get red of. I would have posted this in the Classifieds, but it's more relevant here.

Here's some pictures, comes with an IA6C receiver, never actually used. All for $50. Oh and the antennas on the receiver are in perfect condition. I'll ship it with a 3D printed gimbal protector for protection.

Spoiler

Lets bring this topic back,聽

@Hackentosher聽you'll be happy to know I didn't get some crappy frame off Banggood. Got a Brand new Diatone Tyrant S for $35 from a local guy he won, More amp'd on the PDB this thing has in it. So will be sticking in my CC3D Fc and the VTX03. Only thing thats in the air is the Camera聽

Also got myself the Turnigy Evo :)聽already sold the FS-T6 and ended up costing me $14 to upgrade :)

now need to figure out how to get new foam and re cut it for for Evo :P:P

Nope, built in ESC's sounds like a bad idea with how many i've blown :P

Its got this聽

The only thing I need to figure out is the ESC pads have + - and the signal cable but my ESC's the signal cable has two wires not one :/

The signal ground is not technically necessary. You don't need to have it connected it, but it's not a bad idea.聽

Oh sweet, I'll give it a clean cut :)聽will do the BLHeli firmware upgrade through the USB adapter I got first though. excited for my first proper build with good parts.聽

going to keep the 1806/12a ESC's and put them on a 150 build can at least use my 3S on there when I finally get some 4S just for a fun little bugger around drone :)

Why? You can update BLHeli through the flight controller.

Lol 1806 on a 3" will be... it will be a build. I feel like they might be too heavy, or might pull too much current for an 850mah pack, and a 1000 might be too heavy. 1806 motors are kinda out dated at this point, there hasn't been a new 1806 since like 2015, but the Brother Hobby 1407 is a pretty damn good motor. Can even swing a 5x4x2 prop alright, but it really shines on 4".
